ABOUT RMO-raSBMSIXIVB 
SBIZURBS 

A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to 
certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear 
in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may 
have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these "photosensitive epileptic 
seizures" while watching video games. 

These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, 
altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, 
disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also 
cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling 
down or striking nearby objects. 

Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these 
symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above 
symptoms-children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience 
these seizures. 

The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting farther 
from the television screen, using a smaller television screen, playing in a well- 
lit room, and not playing when you are drowsy or fatigued. 

If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a 
doctor before playing. 

Other Important Health and Safety Information The Xbox Instruction Manual 
contains important health and safety information that you should read and 
understand before using this software. 

AVOID DAMAC3B Xa YOUR 
XBLBVISIOM 

Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially front- or 
rear-projection types, can be damaged if any video games, including Xbox 
games, are played on them. Static images presented during the normal course 
of gameplay may "burn in" to the screen, causing a permanent shadow of 
the static image to appear at all times, even when video games are not being 
played. Similar damage may occur from static images created when placing 
a video game on hold or pause. Consult your television owner's manual to 
determine if video games can be played safely on your set. If you are unable to 
find this information in the owner's manual, contact your television dealer or 
the manufacturer to determine if video games can be played safely on your set.

stability Management (STM) helps maintain vehicle control under difficult cornering conditions. 

Traction Control (TCS) maximizes grip between the vehicle's driven tires and the road surface 
under acceleration. 

Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) rapidly alters brake pressure to maintain maximum braking force at 
the threshold of wheel lockup. 

Suggested Line helps you learn racing technigues by drawing a racing line on the track. Green 
indicates you should accelerate, and red indicates you should slow down (by releasing the gas 
and/or applying the brakes). However, racing the suggested line doesn't guarantee victory. 
The optimum speed and line for each race might be different across drivers, cars, conditions, 
and setups.

■ ARCADE MOPE ^ 

When you first begin Arcade mode, you have access to a few tracks and cars. 

Unlocking the Next Series of Arcade Races 

To unlock the next series of races within Arcade mode, place in the top three 

against your opponents in all races within your current series. 

Unlocking Cars / 

You can unlock up to three cars in each series. Place at least third in every race 
to unlock one car for that series, at least second in every race to unlock two 
cars, or first in every race to unlock three cars. 

.I-OADIMC3 VOUR OARAC3E 



While in Arcade mode, you can load any cars from your Career mode Garage by 
selecting the My Cars icon on the Select Car Class screen. 




Career mode is the core of Forza Motorsport You begin your career with a small 
amount of credits (CR), which you can use to buy and upgrade cars. As you 
compete in races, you'll earn more credits. You can win cars by finishing first in 
all races within a Career series. If you're connected to Xbox Live, you also have 
the opportunity to compete in your career online. 

- Racb Rbsxricxioms 



Races in Career mode are restricted to specific types of cars. Restrictions 
include car class, manufacturer region, power, and weight. If you're not in 
the correct car for a specific race, you must select a different car from your 
Garage, buy a different car, or modify your existing car. 

■ MOMB RBC3IOMS A MP RARIXY 

Choosing a home region is important in Forza Motorsport, because it determines 
availability, cost, and rarity of the cars in your career. Entry-level cars, such 
as the Honda Civic or Ford Focus, are common (and thus inexpensive) in all 
regions. Middle- to high-level cars, such as the Nissan Skyline, Chevrolet 
Corvette, or Opel Speedster, are far more common in their home region and 
relatively rare (and thus more expensive) in other regions. Supercars, such as 
the Enzo Ferrari, Porsche Carrera GT, or Chrysler ME Four-Twelve, are equally 
uncommon and rare in all regions. The rarer your car is in your region, the more 
value it holds. 

Region also determines what aftermarket parts relationships you develop as you 
win money in your career (see page 11). After you choose a home region for a 
player profile, it cannot be changed. If you want to select another home region, 
you must create a new profile. 



You can buy and sell cars with other players, and this is a good opportunity 
to collect cars from other regions. Therefore, it is in your best interest to 
pick a region different from your friends', so you can buy and sell cars for 
profit that are rare in each other's regions. You can buy and sell over Xbox 
Live, via System Link, or between profiles on the same Xbox console. 

CARBBR I-BVBI-S AMD 
_ MAMURACXURBR RBI-AXIOMSMIRS 



As you progress to different levels, you unlock relationships with different 
manufacturers. There are two types of manufacturer relationships you'll unlock: 

Parts Manufacturers - Unlocking a parts-manufacturer relationship results 
in discounted parts being available in the Buy Upgrades area of the 
Garage. For example, a relationship with a tire manufacturer can lead to 
discounted tires. 

Car Manufacturers - Unlocking a car-manufacturer relationship results 
in previously locked cars from that car manufacturer being unlocked and 
available for sale. Occasionally, a car will be gifted to you. 



By increasing your difficulty, you increase your potential earnings. The guickest way to increase 
your earnings is by making the game more challenging. 

By default, damage and fuel/tire wear are enabled. Depending on the race, you might need to pit 
when those options are turned on. 



\ Regardless of home region, by advancing your career, you eventually will gain access to 
f all cars in the game. Region has no bearing on your language or your country of origin, 
nor does it affect which tracks are available to you.

Buy Upgrades 

Improve your car with a high-performance engine, drivetrain, chassis, and 
bodywork components. Add, remove, or sell parts from your car that you've 
already purchased (note: when you sell parts, you won't earn back the original 
purchase price). Upgrading a vehicle might move it out of its current car class; 
when this happens, you can uninstall parts if you want to return to a lower 
car class. 

■ Engine and Power - Engines make power by burning a fuel and air mixture. 
To make more power, you must improve the engine's ability to breathe and 
thus burn more fuel. To improve breathing in Forza Motorsport, intake and 
exhaust upgrades reduce restrictions on air flow into and exhaust flow out 
of the engine; fuel and ignition upgrades supply higher fuel flow and a hotter 
spark for better combustion efficiency; and turbo and supercharger upgrades 
force more air into the engine. 

■ Appearance and Aero - Customize your car's appearance to transform a 
generic car into /o(/rcar. Add front and rear spoilers and side-skirts to 
reduce wind drag, while increasing grip through higher downforce. Reduce 
weight with a carbon-fiber hood. 

■ Chassis and Drivetrain - The chassis is the structure to which the body, 
engine, drivetrain, wheels, tires, and even passengers attach. This structure 
affects handling-how well a car grips the road and how accurately it 
responds to driver inputs. Improve the chassis by modifying the suspension 
and stiffening and lightening the structure. The drivetrain transmits the 
power of the engine into motion at the wheels and the energy of motion 
into heat at the brakes and tires. Improve the efficiency, accuracy, and 
flexibility of the drivetrain by upgrading the transmission, clutch, brakes, 
differential(s), wheels, and tires. 



When installing and uninstalling parts, you'll see the following icons: 



You own this part, but it isn't installed. 



You own this part, and it is installed currently. 



Additionally, as you select parts for your vehicle, you can see that each part 
has up to three different levels above the stock part: 

■ Modified Part - This is an improvement over the stock setup. 

■ Clubsport Part - This is an improvement over the modified setup. 

■ Professional Part - This is the most advanced improvement for this 
setup and is designed for all-out racing. 



\ The Buy Upgrades area contains matched upgrade kits that are designed to improve 
' your vehicle's performance. These Idts will always improve your performance, and 
combinations of upgrade kits will show even greater improvement. You don't run the risk of 
decreasing vehicle performance when buying and installing upgrades. However, tuning changes 
made to your car in the Tune Car Setup area can affect performance adversely if done incorrectly.

Forzd MotorsportaWam you control over your car's chassis tuning. Then, you 
can benchmark and test drive your new settings and save or load your favorite 
chassis setups. 

Tuning is a complicated process. All of the tuning options are related to and 
dependent upon each other. Furthermore, there is no "right setting." The best 
setting will change by track, by car, and by driver. The ultimate test of a setup 
is on the track, so tune your car, and then go test drive to see the effects of 
your changes.

Go to Customize Paint to make basic changes to your car's paint job. Here, you 
can alter the paint on your car's body, mirrors, hood, and wing. If you want to 
create a detailed, unique design, you must select Apply Decals. 

_arri-v dbcai-s 



The Apply Decals area is the most advanced livery editor of its kind. Here, you 
can add decals and create custom vinyl shapes and patterns on your car. You 
also can create custom skins that designate your Car Club. 

Layers / 

The building blocks for your car's custom design are called layers. Each layer 
can contain one element: either vinyl or a decal. You can stack layers on top 
of other layers to create any design you want. There are six parts to your car: 
top side (including the hood), left side, right side, front bumper, rear bumper, 
and the wing. Each of these six parts has 100 layers-for a total of 600 layers 
on all sides. 

(continued on page 16) 





Higher-numbered layers sit above lower-numbered layers-that is, if you have 
a layer 1 and layer 1 on top of each other, layer 1 will cover layer 1. Here is 
an example: 

If you want to place a decal on top of a blue vinyl oval, you'd first create the 
blue vinyl shape on a layer. ▼ 




Next, you'd 



The decal layer sits on the oval vinyl layer, because it has a higher layer 
number. If the decal had a lower layer number, it would be hidden below the 
oval. This is a very basic example-remember that each of the six parts of your 
car has 100 layers, so your design possibilities are endless. 

Layer Options 

Within the Layer Options menu, you can copy, paste, insert, or delete layers. 
You also have the option to copy all layers from one side of your car and paste 
them on the other side of your car. 

Copy Custom Design 

You can copy your car's custom design and paste it onto another vehicle of the 
same make and model. This is very useful for Xbox Live Car Club members who 
want to have a unique design that designates their club.

Amateur Races are single races, and the car restrictions aren't very strict. 
Specifications for Amateur Races are creative in their restrictions. 

Point-to-Point Races send you from one point to another along a turn- 
intensive course in an attempt to beat your opponents. 

Professional Races have very tight, competitive specifications for the cars 
that can enter. 

Championship Series races involve multiple races. For each series race, you 
are awarded points based on your finish. You don't have to finish first in 
every race, but you do want the highest point total at the end of the series 
of races. 

Endurance Events are extremely long events where pit strategy can be 
important and the potential for earnings is greater. 

Online Career races allow you to compete over Xbox //Ve against human 
opponents, while earning Career credits and leveling up.

Car Clubs are an Xbox Live exclusive. A Car Club is a team of drivers who 
have joined together. Car Club statistics are tracked as a group, and a Car 
Club functions like a shared Friends list. You can always find your Car Club 
members online quickly, and you can track your Car Club members' stats in the 
scoreboards. Your Car Club can have members who are not in your Xbox Live 
Friends list. You can join only one Car Club, and as a member of the Car Club, 
you contribute to the Car Club's score. 

Creating a Car Club 

When you create a Car Club, you become the Club President. The President 
can recruit any member of the Xbox Live community to be in the Car Club. The 
President also can designate club members as Recruiters. 



\ Recruiters can add and remove members from the Car Club, but they can't remove other 
f Recruiters; only the President can remove a Recruiter.

DRIVERS' NOTEBOOK 



OUTSIDE-lNSIDE-OUTSIDE CORNERING 

To maximize cornering speed, use the entire width of the track to make 
every corner as wide as possible. This provides the largest radius 
through the corner, allowing the highest speed given 
available tire grip. 



B 




When approaching a corner, place your 
vehicle to the outside edge of the track until 
"turn in." Then, move from the outside edge 
to the inside edge at a point called "the 
apex"— somewhere near the middle of the 
corner. When past the apex, use the track's 
width to your advantage, moving 
back toward the outside edge as you 
complete the corner. 



Late and Early Apexing 

A "late apex" is an apex point after the 
geometric center of a corner. When late 
apexing, you give up some cornering speed, 
so there's more grip available to accelerate 
your car earlier. In some cases, the time lost 
because of the slower speed through the 
corner is made up for by the time gained 
through increased straightaway speed after the corner. 

An "early apex" is an apex point before the geometric center of a 
corner. Apexing early is less common, but it can be advantageous 
when driving through an increasing-radius 
corner (see page 18). You might try to 
apex earlier to maximize speed through a 
corner (by creating a wide line at the exit), 
but at some point, the line created runs 
too wide and off the outside of the track.

Finding the Line to Maximize Speed 

Find the best path around the track for your vehicle and driving style. 

1 . Drive at a slow pace around the track until you know the layout. 

2. Begin to use the entire track width for all corners using very late 
apexes. This might seem unnatural at slow, non-race speeds. 

3. Slowly work your speed up, and pull each apex back about three 
feet with each lap. 

4. Eventually, you will need to use the entire width of the track on 
the exit of a corner. You are now very close to the vehicle's limits 
and should start moving apexes back in smaller increments. If 
you run off the outside edge of the track or must "turn in" again 
after you've passed your apex, you've apexed too early. 

5. When you've worked up to speeds and apexes that force you to 
use the entire track, then you've found your baseline around the 
track. This line might be different across drivers, cars, conditions, 
and car setups. 

6. Now, work on compromising certain corners to maximize your 
speed through others (where corners are close together). 
Generally, it's best to focus on corners with the longest straights 
after them, as the speed you carry through the corners will help 
you on the following straightaways. Use lap times and telemetry 
to determine the best compromises between corners. 



»•■''

DRIVERS' NOTEBOOK (continued) 



Setting up the Pass 

Most passing happens under braking or coming off of a corner on to 
a straightaway. To pass under braking, first get as close as possible 
to the car in front of you. As you both approach a corner, move your 
car to the inside of your opponent and bring it alongside— try to 
have the nose of your car at least past the door of your opponent. ^ 
Brake later than the other car; with your nose ahead, your opponent " 
will not be able to make the turn. You now have "taken" the corner 
and are halfway through the pass. Drive through the corner (without 
hitting your opponent). Your opponent should fall in behind you; when 
that happens, you've "made the pass." Be aware that your opponent 
might try to re-pass you coming onto the straightaway (by late 
apexing), because the line you took through the corner was severely 
compromised to make the pass. 

If you have a faster car (or an evenly matched one), the safest place to 
pass is on the straightaway. If the cars are closely matched, you should 
be able to get close enough that your opponent has to start driving a 
protective (inside) racing line to keep you from passing in a braking 
zone. As the other driver brakes deeply on the inside of the track, swing 
to the outside of the track and prepare to hit a late apex. You should be 
able to drive to the inside of your opponent as you both exit the corner. 
Because you're on a late apexing line, you should have more speed 
onto the straightaway than your opponent, who's recovering from a 
very early apexing (protective) line. 

Blocking the Pass 

Passing often occurs in the braking zone. If a vehicle is close behind 
yours, you should protect the inside line while braking into corners. 
This isn't the fastest way around the track (and why a "qualifying 
line"— without opponents— is different from a "racing line"), but it 
will prevent the other driver from muscling in to the inside line. (If 
that happens, you'll be forced to drop behind or to take the outside 
edge of the track.) Even though you're driving more slowly using the 
inside line, it's far more difficult for the driver behind you to pass on 
the outside.

WARRANTY 



Limited Warranty For Your Copy of 
Xbox Game Software ("Game") Acquired in 
THE United States or Canada 
Warranty 

Microsoft Corporation ("IVIicrosoft") warrants to you, the original purchaser of the 
Game, that this Game will perform substantially as described in the accompanying 
manual for a period of 90 days from the date of first purchase. If you discover a 
problem with the Game covered by this warranty within the 90-day period, your 
retailer will repair or replace the Game at its option, free of charge, according to 
the process identified below. This limited warranty: (a) does not apply if the Game 
is used in a business or for a commercial purpose; and (b) is void if any difficulties 
with the Game are related to accident, abuse, virus or misapplication. 

RETURNS WITHIN 90-DAY PERIOD 

Warranty claims should be made to your retailer. Return the Game to your retailer 
along with a copy of the original sales receipt and an explanation of the difficulty you 
are experiencing with the Game. At its option, the retailer will either repair or replace 
the Game. Any replacement Game will be warranted for the remainder of the original 
warranty period or 30 days from receipt, whichever is longer. If for any reason the 
Game cannot be repaired or replaced, you will be entitled to receive your direct (but 
no other) damages incurred in reasonable reliance but only up to the amount of the 
price you paid for the Game. The foregoing (repair, replacement or limited damages) 
is your exclusive remedy. 

Limitations 

This limited warranty is in place of all other express or statutory warranties, 
conditions or duties and no others of any nature are made or shall be binding 
on Microsoft, its retailers or suppliers. Any implied warranties applicable to 
this Game or the media in which it is contained are limited to the 90-day period 
described above. TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, NEITHER MICROSOFT, 
ITS RETAILERS OR SUPPLIERS ARE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, 
PUNITIVE, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE 
POSSESSION, USE OR MALFUNCTION OF THIS GAME. THE FOREGOING APPLIES 
EVEN IF ANY REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. Some states/ 
jurisdictions do not allow limitations as to how long an implied warranty lasts and/ 
or exclusions or limitations of incidental or consequential damages so the above 
limitations and/or exclusions of liability may not apply to you. This limited warranty 
gives you specific rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state/ 
jurisdiction to state/jurisdiction.
